kaepernick went to the university of nevada. they are placing more money on the 49ers than the seahawks but the seahawks are the favorite to win. but the internet doesn't like the seahawks. the facebook map shows a lot of red. california has turned into a red state hen it comes to football. the seahawks logo didn't stand a chance in a ski resort in truckee today.

high pressure, they have the breath knocked out of them. you can pick this up looking at the satellite. way out here, that looks powerful. as you get closer t system doesn't look as powerful and another trough that came through, there is nothing left of it but that. so by the time the systems hit the high pressure, they are done. that means we are going to look at more warm dry weather at least for the next week or so. so sunny through midweek. near record highs persist and no showers in sight. there is just none coming in. pinpoint forecast if you are headed out to sacramento, 67. be chilly tonight. santa rosa this morning at 7:00. 31 at livermore. average highs at this time of the year, san francisco, 11 degrees above our average at 68 tomorrow. down in the south bay. 10 degrees above average with 70 for a high. in the east bay, we will make due with mid 60s . 69 at

famed california derby toda golden . >> named by a couple of die- hard 49er fans, harbaugh the horse on display at the california derby today at golden gate field. they had an early lead, but harbaugh would fade all the way back to seventh. exit stage left with jockey russell bay. the hall of famer was the winner in that one. now i would like to tell you that we sent dennis o'donnell to seattle in search of rain. instead. seahawk fans have rained on him. what is up this eve of this conference battle dennis? >> reporter: vern, i'm tired of
the seahawks fans. i want the niners to take care of business tomorrow. at least the 49ers won't finish seventh tomorrow. but i have two thoroughbreds i want to dell you about. lynch and gore. that team wins the game, chevre back goes over 100 yards. and for lynch l is more than a superbowl riding on it. >> i don't know if he is the best but he is good. >> reporter: stop lynch and you stop the seahawks. beast mode is more than just his style. the oakland native put a trademark on the term beast mode and pulled in half a million in royalties in 2013. san francisco bay stage doug hendrickson represents him. >> we thought it was a cool
moniker. i figure if seattle wins tomorrow, this thing will hit big and be on a national scale. >> reporter: earlier this week, they gave jennifer montana the right to sell beast mode. >> who do you think the montanas are pulling for? >> i think they are pulling for lynch and seattle. we will see. >> reporter: i should say that all the proceeds from lynch, the trademark name beast mode; they all go to his foundation so that's the good thing. but vern, the dodgers outfielder matt kemp offered him the beast mode for $100,000 and lynch said no thank you. by the way, there is no way the montanas are pulling for the seahawks. >> okay, all right. that is a matter of public record. thank you dennis and i will see you on the other side of a 19-
17 49ers victory. vern glenn has predicted that the 49ers are going to win. it is on the air. that's it. >> reporter: i like it. i like that you took a stand. i told kenny the 49ers win the game 17-9. so we are both on the victorious side headed to new york city. >> see you game day tomorrow. >> all right. coming up after the break, a top seeded open. and warriors and the sharks. we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
